France: Netanyahu, Macron clash over Iran deal Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday that he never tried to convince France to withdraw from the Iranian nuclear deal, during a joint press conference with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron in Paris. «I want to make it clear that I didn't ask President Macron to leave the deal. I think the economic realities are going to... Еще decide this matter, so this is not what we focused on. What we focused on is to stop Iranian aggression in the region, specifically, Israel's goal, which I think should be shared by all of those who seek peace, and prosperity and stability in the Middle East, a reconstructed Syria, which you seek, affirmed Netanyahu. The Israeli Prime Minister assured that «the greatest threat to the world today in my view is nuclear weapons in the hands of a radical Islamic regime like Teheran.» On his end, Macron said that France will continue to work with the existing deal, calling it «a milestone worth preserving.» «We have a saying, better to keep small things in your hands than look for bigger ones out there,» Macron said.
